Do You Have a Life List?

I’ve finally come up with a “life list.” I’ve had a word document saved on my desktop for sometime of some rough ideas I’ve come up with. I don’t like the term “bucket list” because it’s very Hollywood now and somehow implies you life is less than ideal unless you accomplish those things. I heard the term “Life List” on another blog and have decided to publish mine. So here it goes:

  • Create a blog
  • Learn to speak another language
  • Have a garden
  • Become 100% debt free
  • Go to Greece, Japan, and India
  • Run a 5k
  • Adopt
  • Go to New York city
  • Teach my son to read
  • Get 8 hours of sleep every night for one month
  • Swim with the dolphins in Cabo with Auden
  • Build a house from the ground up
  • Write a book- even if it’s horrible and I’m the only one that ever reads it
  • Read through BBC’s list of 100 Books to Read before you Die. The list is found here: bbc100 books
  • Visit all of the major league baseball parks with my husband
  • Climb a mountain with Greg and Audie- preferably Desolation Peak- Kerouac’s mountain. After all, it is “impossible to fall off mountains.”
  • Graduate grad school
